15-Passenger Van Accidents in Fort Lauderdale

Count on Our Attorneys to Fight for Your Rights

If you were injured or a loved one was killed in a 15-passenger van or other type of SUV or van accident in South Florida, it is important to contact a knowledgeable van accident personal injury attorney today.

Popular with churches, schools and other groups, these vans can seem like a solid option for transporting large amounts of people for less than the cost of a bus. Plus, the driver is not required to have a special license to drive the vehicle. Unfortunately, the 15-passenger van is one of the most unsafe vehicles on the road. In fact, 15-passenger vans easily roll over when fully loaded with passengers and cargo — the more passengers and cargo on board, the higher the risk of rollover. Just like with an SUV, vans have a high center of gravity. This high center of gravity, combined with other design defects, create uneven weight distribution and instability in an accident-avoidance maneuver or a tire blow-out.

Manufacturers of these vans know about the various defects and the troubling fact that they can lead to accidents, injuries and even deaths. Despite this, they continue to fill our roads with them, wreaking havoc on many unfortunate victims. The personal injury lawyers of Ginnis & Krathen, P.A. are experienced in successfully handling van accidents and 15-passenger van rollovers. We want to hold manufacturers responsible for their defective products and get you the reimbursement you deserve for your van accident injury.

If you or a family member was injured in a 15-passenger van accident or rollover accident, an SUV accident or rollover or any other type of van accident or rollover, it is important to get in touch with a van accident attorney today.

It will take an experienced van accident injury attorney to expose these hazardous defects and make the manufacturers pay for endangering our lives and the lives of the ones we love.
